this may be purely subjective. I'm not a movie person but i'll never forget the ending to that film 'Alive'. The end score affected me to the point I never forgot it.

What movies have ended in a way that it's hard for you to forget?

I really like Les Miserables's ending
It's beautiful, wonderfully acted and just gives the movie a nice ghostly lovely ending, as the film and it's characters had been through such a horrible tough time.

The best ending to any film ever has to be the original Planet of the Apes. Sure it has been diluted over the years by numerous sequels, prequels and reboots, but on first viewing, if you dont know whats coming....very powerful.

Talking of De Palma, I would also have to mention Blow Out's ending.

I watched this a few days ago on blu ray, and without spoiling the ending I must say it's one of the most inventive, unique and truly gut wrenching endings to a movie I have ever seen.

Carrie (1976)

A rather terrifying ending and final revenge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emPABapBvmU

Shawshank. If it had ended over the shot of the sea, it would have been wonderful.
As it is, it ended on the beach and is wonderful in a whole different way.

The Long Good Friday has a brilliant ending!

And I quite like the end of The Shining.

The Shawshank Redemption, and/or The Usual Suspects.

Both brilliant.

Donny Darko. Especially the song over the final montage of all the people. Even if you didn't understand what actually happened in the film, you knew it had internal logic and was somehow very satisfying.

Aside from the awful acting. I thought Brad Pitt was good in it until that final scene.

+1 for Usual Suspects
